“I haven’t gotten this far in the UFC by coincidence. It’s not because I’m a freak athlete. It’s because I’m a great athlete that comes extremely prepared.”
Jonathan Dwight “Jon” Jones (born July 19, 1987) is an American mixed martial artist and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. He is widely regarded as the best mixed martial arts fighter in the world and as one of the greatest fighters of all time.
When he won the title in March 2011 at the age of 23, he became the youngest champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s (UFC) history.
He was ranked as the #1 light heavyweight fighter in the world by various media outlets for a number of years, and was also ranked the #1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world by multiple publications.
Jon Jones defeated Dan Henderson on December 11, 2016 at Submission Underground 2. His next grappling match will be on January 29, 2017 against Chael Sonnen.
We are happy to have Jon Jones back as a Team Everlast athlete and are excited for what the 2017 will bring.
